Social media is a big part of everyone’s lives. Most of us spend countless minutes of the day liking photos on Instagram, retweeting posts on Twitter and laughing at memes on Facebook. If you’re like me you get sucked in watching the endless amounts of videos on Facebook that can either have you laughing, crying or hooked on the newest gadgets. Every now and then we come across something that really catches our eye. For me I came across a video of a girl using this cool utensil for people with limited hand mobility. It was a few months back, and I remember watching the video a few times to see how it worked. I thought to myself, “wow this is a great product for people to have their independence!” I didn’t research it any further because I have Spastic Diplegia Cerebral Palsy so only my waist down is affected.
Little did I know the company behind this cool Facebook video I saw was Verily. The utensil the girl was using in the video was called Liftware Level. It was a funny coincidence because I was contacted by Verily shortly after seeing their video and I was given an opportunity to try out and review their Liftware Level Utensil. I suppose I was interested in how their product worked, and they were interested in me helping getting the word out on this awesome device.
The Liftware Level is designed for really anyone who struggles with daily hand and arm mobility especially those living with post-stroke deficits, Huntington’s disease, spinal cord injury and Cerebral Palsy. When opening my package, the first thing I noticed is how sleek and modern it was. I loved the fact that it had an adjustable strap allowing it to stay in your hand without having to grip the utensil. The switch from spoon to fork is made to be effortless with magnets, and the product is lightweight and fits into your hand perfectly. I was surprised at how quiet it was when it was motion. There are no buttons on the Liftware Level, it is turned on and off simply by attaching and removing the fork and spoon. All in all, the product is so easy and simple to use and it charges with a USB port, how easy is that! In the handle of each Liftware Level device there are sensors that detect motion and a computer directs the two motors to either stabilize or to bend the utensil.
Regardless of my Cerebral Palsy not affecting my hands or arms I noticed right away no matter how I held, moved or twisted my wrist or arm the Liftware Level adjusted to my range of motion. It was always held horizontal without spilling or dropping anything off the fork or spoon. The Liftware Level takes away your stress and anxiety of eating. This product truly lets you just enjoy your food and the company around you. There is no more worrying about the way you hold your fork, or if it falls on the floor. Liftware Level has you covered in all of those situations, I truly recommend this to anyone who will benefit from it, I think it’s a fantastic product. The best part of it is it gives people their ability to eat independently back, making life easier, and to me that’s what it’s all about.
